Marcel P. Black "Someday" ft. Skyzoo (Produced by Donche')

If you know you know me, you know I'm a huge Skyzoo fan. When we met, we vibed, and discussed making a record. Less than two weeks later he sent the record back. 18 months later, here we are. Two husbands and fathers discussing our intentions as men, and discussing what we want our legacies to be when it's all said and done.

"In Search of The Black Messiah" drops on 10.15.19 on all digital retailers.

Marcel P. Black "Black God Fresh" ft. Big Sant (Produced by Backpack Beatz)

Finally!!! Here's my first single "Black God Fresh" from my upcoming album "In Search of The Black Messiah" which drops on 10.15.19. The record features my good friend, the Mississipi MFxOG Big Sant, and it's produced by the incredible Backpack Beatz from Florida, now based in Chicago. 

"Black God Fresh" is what happens when conscious raps & country rap tunes collide. There's talks about Polo, gettin' money, Hennessey, & strippers, as well as the Black woman being God, the epedemic of white women calling cops on Black people for nothing, and self care. An all around good time lol.

Also, I've decided to up an edited version for all my people who wanna have a good time sans adult language...

Marcel P. Black "Fatt Boy Fresh" (Prod. by Joe On The Track) *2009*

Way before I found my voice as an emcee... Back when I had dreads, before I was married, before I had kids... Back when I was in college & used to live off of dollar menus & Long Island Iced teas. When it was cool for dudes to wear scarves & Rocawear jeans, I had an alter ego named "Fatt Boy Fresh." 

The year was 2009, I was 25 years old, and I was with all the smoke. This was my attempt with my guy Joe On The Track from Real Profit Ent. to make a "Baton Rouge song." While not quite a jigg record, it was something you could jigg too. Being that I'm bout to drop "Black God Fresh" tomorrow, I'd thought it be cool to drop this song today just to show (laugh at) my growth.
